India vs South Africa Highlights And Cricket Score 3rd Match - Test Commentary

End of Over : 116.3 IND: 497/9

The Proteas have a task in their hand and would hope that their batsmen put up some fight to challenge the Indians. The hosts though would be very happy with the performance of their batsmen and with the pitch deteriorating, the spinners would be hoping to make merry against a lineup which has crumbled so far against so far. Join us for the second innings after Tea at 1500 local (0930 GMT).

South Africa, on the other hand, started well with the ball for a change with Rabada taking early wickets. But the stand of Rahane and Rohit toyed with their bowling and took them apart. None of the bowlers apart from Rabada were good enough to stop the run-flow. The spinners were disappointing, even though, Linde took four wickets but they came a bit too late.

Another Test, another dominating performance by the Indian batsmen. India did not start off well losing three wickets early on which would have given South Africa some hope but Rohit and Rahane nullified all that with some excellent batting. They stitched a partnership of 267 before Rahane fell to George Linde. Sharma went on to score his first double ton and in looking to up the ante,but perished. Jadeja and the rest of the batsmen too had their fun in the middle before Kohli finally decided it was time to call in their batsmen.

Kagiso Rabada to Rohit Sharma. OUT! CAUGHT! Rohit holes out in the search of quick runs. Magnificent innings comes to an end. A bouncer on the body of Rohit from Rabada. The extra pace of Rabada means that the ball came quicker on the bat and hit the higher part of the willow. Rohit got in the position to pull, does so but finds Ngidi positioned at fine leg. The South African players shake hands with the Hitman as he slowly goes to the pavilion. He got plenty of runs with that shot but the same has brought his downfall. Nonetheless, a magnificent knock Rohit.

Welcome back! The South Africa players are out in the middle. Rohit Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja walk out as well. Lungi Ngidi to start the proceeding for the Proteas post Lunch, Rohit to face, on 199.

... Day 2, Session 2 ...

Let's talk about the Protea bowlers then. What to talk? All they have got to show is the hammering they received from the Hitman and Jinx, nothing else. Poor lines, poor length, negative lines as well but nothing has worked for them. Will anything work for them in the second session or will Rohit and Jadeja continue scoring briskly to take the game completely away from the South Africans. Join us for the second session at 1210 local (0640 GMT).

133 runs, 27 overs. Enough for everyone to know who the session belongs to. Just to clear the air regarding that one wicket, that fell after the duo of Rohit and Rahane added another 82 free-flowing runs. Rahane brought up his 11th Test ton, fourth at home before becoming the first Test victim of George Linde. What about his Mumbai mate then? Well, he is on fire! Just a run away from his maiden double ton. He wanted to get to that mark before Lunch and hence there were a couple of chances where one could feel he looked nervous but the Hitman has the luck as well. He got Jadeja for company after the fall of Rahane and has added a quick 50-run stand with him to keep the momentum going and piling on the misery for the Protea bowlers.

End of Over : 85 7 Runs IND: 357/4

We are all set to begin! Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane make their way out to the middle to resume their innings. The Proteas also are out in the middle. Rohit Sharma will face Kagiso Rabada first up. Two slips and a gully to start.

Shaun Pollock has Kagiso Rabada for an interview who says that it would have been nice if they had taken the three wickets in the first 10 overs but they took time to take those wickets. Further goes on to say that there is always an area to improve. Adds that in India, they are never really in the game and says that they need to stick to their plans. On the partnership between Rahane and Rohit, he points out that they are not too perturbed as these kind of partnerships happen in India and they need to find ways to break the partnerships especially when there is no reverse swing on offer for them.

Pitch report - Sanjay Manjrekar says that the weather is cooler than the first day. Gavaskar joins Manjrekar for the report. The Indian legend points that there are spots where the cracks are opening up but they are holding up nicely. He adds that if the bowlers pitch the ball on good length areas, the wicket will assist them. However, points that there are plenty of runs still on offer on this track.

A session to South Africa. And then it was all about India. Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane after battling out the first session took the attack to the opposition and helped India get an upper hand before weather interrupted play and forced an early Stumps. Now, Rahane is just 17 away from his first ton of the series. Rohit is motoring along nicely. How will South Africa react? They need quick wickets. Can Rabada bowl another special spell to help his side do that? Will he get any assistance from others? Or will the Indian batters pile a mountain of runs like they have done all series? We will have all the answers soon. Welcome to our coverage of Day 2.

... Day 2, Session 1 ...

That's all from our coverage of Day 1 of the Test match between India and South Africa. The news is that 98 overs will be bowled on Day 2 but there will not be an early start with a chance to extend play till half past five. Join us for an exciting Day 2 at 0930 local (0400 GMT).

The visitors, on the other hand, started well with the ball picking up early wickets but all the hard work that they had done was put off by the brilliance of Rahane and Rohit. Rabada was the pick of the bowlers while Nortje was good in patches. The debutant, George Linde could not make much of an impact while Dane Piedt was taken apart by the Hitman. Going into Day 2, They would hope to get wickets as quickly as possible otherwise India will run away with the game yet again.

So the day has belonged to India after being in trouble at the start of the game having lost three wickets early on. But since then, Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane made merry off the bowling and milked runs with ease. Rohit went on to register his third Test century as an opener while Rahane has looked good in his unbeaten 83. They would hope to continue the good work on Day 2 as well.

There you go. The inevitable has happened. The play for the day has been abandoned. Bad light and then drizzle kept everyone at bay and with that it is STUMPS ON DAY 1.

Ok then! The lights have faded even further. The groundstaff have got the pitch covered now which means that the resumption looks highly unlikely.

Both the umpires have got together to discuss the light issue. It has gone really gloomy. Yes, the umpires think the same too and they have decided to go off the park for the time being.

He has raked up a magnificent Test ton, his third of the series and is looking like a beast at the moment. Rahane who joined him when the side was in trouble has played a top knock as well in the 166-run stand. The South African bowlers have nothing to show from this session apart from the hammering they have got from the duo of Rohit and Rahane. How will they respond in the final session of the day?

Drinks! An excellent hour of play for the visitors as they have managed to make use of the new ball and get two early wickets which did not happen in the earlier matches. They would be buoyed by the spell bowled by Rabada who bowled with venom and troubled the Indian batsmen. India, on the other hand, are under pressure for the first time in the series and would want Virat Kohli to score a big knock here. Rohit has looked edgy but has managed to survive.

Kagiso Rabada to Mayank Agarwal. Beaten! Swinging delivery to start the innings. A jaffa from Rabada. A length ball on the fourth stump line. Agarwal goes hard with his push but is beaten to due to the away swing.

The South African team is in a huddle before they take the position on the field. The two Indian openers, Rohit Sharma and Mayank Agarwal come out to the middle as well. Kagiso Rabada will start the proceedings with the ball for the visitors. Mayank Agarwal to take the strike first up.

South Africa (PLAYING XI) - Dean Elgar, Quinton de Kock, Zubayr Hamza (IN FOR THEUNIS DE BRUYNE), Faf du Plessis(C), Temba Bavuma, Heinrich Klaasen(WK, IN FOR AIDEN MARKRAM), George Linde (DEBUT, IN FOR KESHAV MAHARAJ), Dane Piedt, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Lungi Ngidi (IN FOR VERNON PHILANDER)

India (PLAYING XI) - Mayank Agarwal, Rohit Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli(C), Ajinkya Rahane, Ravindra Jadeja, Wriddhiman Saha(WK), Ravichandran Ashwin, Shahbaz Nadeem (DEBUT, IN FOR ISHANT SHARMA), Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami

Faf du Plessis, the Protea skipper, starts by saying that he is trying everything to win the Toss but believes that maybe it isn't meant to be. On the team composition, Faf points out that, Quinton de Kock is set to open the innings for his side and will try to take the Indian bowlers on, as Rohit Sharma has done for the Indians. Du Plessis further adds that Heinrich Klaasen and George Linde are the two debutants in the side while Lungi Ngidi replaces Vernon Philander.

Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper opts to bat first. Starts by saying that the pitch will start slowing down from day 2 and hence it is no brainer. The Indian skipper believes there will be sharp spin on offer on this track. Reveals that Ishant makes way for local lad Shahbaz Nadeem. Indian skipper adds that they will have to work hard and they will try to win sessions to win the game.

Toss - The South African skipper is in for the Toss but interestingly, he has Temba Bavuma as a lucky charm for the Toss. Interesting to see if the luck changes for him. Up goes the coin and again it is Kohli who wins the toss as Temba Bavuma calls the wrong side. INDIA OPT TO BAT FIRST.

Pitch Report - Sanjay Manjrekar has Sunil Gavaskar for company for the Pitch Report. The former India legend says that there are plenty of cracks on the first day pitch itself. Gavaskar believes that there will be uneven bounce and hence the batters will have to apply themselves to score runs. Adds that the track will be a spinners' paradise.

It's almost time for the final Test of the series. The results have been the way it was expected but one would've hoped for a better showing from the Proteas. Now, the caravan has moved to Ranchi for the final Test of the series and the South Africans have another chance. What about India then? Well, they are on a roll and would like to keep rolling and whitewash the Saffas to get another 40 points and consolidate their top position in the ICC World Test Championship. Will they look to tinker their side for the final Test, having won the series already? Let's see what is in store for us. Is there some luck in store for skipper Faf du Plessis with respect to the Toss? So, will South Africa be able to present any fight or will India hammer them again to take the series 3-0? Pitch report and Toss update in a while.

End of Over : 56.2 SA: 162/10

Umesh Yadav will share the new ball from the other end.

Now, India have enforced the follow on. Interesting to see how the Protea batters respond in this innings. Can they present any fight or will the Indians roll them out in this innings too?

Indian bowlers, well, they have been mighty impressive throughout the innings. Pacers, spinners, all of them. Shami and Yadav started with a bang on Day 2,then Jadeja and Nadeem took over to the peg the visitors further. Shami chipped in with two wickets too.

Another poor batting performance from the Proteas. Apart from one stand between Hamza and Bavuma, there is nothing to discuss about their batting. Linde and Nortje resisted a bit but their wickets were always on the cards.

Just 56.2 overs to bundle the visitors out and INDIA HAVE ENFORCED THE FOLLOW-ON. A wise decision as there is rain forecast on all the remaining days.

DRINKS! A wicket in the first over post Lunch and then a run out in the next. Since then George Linde and Anrich Nortje have added 31 runs, that hardly matters to be honest. But they have played out almost 100 balls to frustrate the bowlers. Let's see how long they can hold on. Will Kohli enforce the follow-on if he manages to get the remaining two wickets quickly? Or will the frustration for the Indians continue? Interesting second half of the second session coming up. The floodlights have taken effect at the stadium. Shahbaz Nadeem will bowl for the hosts.

... Day 3, Session 2 ...

Now then, 4 more wickets. Can they go past the follow-on total? Or will the Indians roll them out before that and enforce the follow-on? With rain around the corner, Kohli might be thinking about the same. Let's see how things unfold in the afternoon session. Join us at 1210 local (0640 GMT).

120 runs for South Africa in 31 overs. Seems like their session, right? Well, not really, they have lost 4 wickets and are still 368 runs behind. Umesh Yadav struck early to remove the Protea skipper but Zubayr Hamza then was joined by Temba Bavuma and the two added a solid 91 runs between them with Hamza getting to his maiden half ton. And once Jadeja removed Hamza, he along with debutant Shahbaz Nadeem picked a couple of more wickets to peg the visitors further.

DRINKS! A good hour of play for the Proteas. They lost an early wicket of Faf du Plessis but since then Hamza and Bavuma have stitched a very good partnership but they would know that they have a long way to go still. India, though would need to be patient as they have bowled well but the edges have not gone to hand. Ravindra Jadeja to bowl after the mini-break.

Pitch report - Sanjay Manjrekar is near the pitch, says that the pitch has not changed due to the rain overnight. Says that there might be some explosions off the pitch. He is joined by Sunil Gavaskar who says that the cracks are opening up a bit as the covers have been on and there has been no sunlight. Further says that the cracks has not opened as it was supposed to.

Enoch Nkwe, the South African team director is there for an interview with Shaun Pollock. Nkwe starts by saying that India have played really well and they need to try to make a match out of it but there is no excuse of playing poorly. Further goes on to say that they need to keep putting pressure on India. Adds that they lost early wickets.

The pitch was covered in the morning due to some drizzle in the morning but that has cleared up. The covers have been removed and we will have a start on time.

South Africa have not turned up at all in this Test series and here it is no different. After a good start, they were taken apart by Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane as India posted a mammoth total. And, when they came to bat, they lost two quick wickets before bad light forced early Stumps on Day 2. Now, for them to stand any chance, their skipper, Faf du Plessis needs to stand up and deliver for his side and hope for some support from the other end as well. India, on the other hand, are in a position of strength at the moment and have the Proteas on the mat. How long will South Africa survive? Join us in a while to find out.

... Day 3, Session 1 ...

Now, on both the days, rain arrived in the final session. That can happen on Day 3 too. With rain around the corner on all the three remaining days, the Indians would look to bundle the visitors quickly and think of enforcing a follow-on. The way the Indian bowlers are bowling, that is possible too. What about the remaining South African batters. Faf du Plessis will have to lead from the front if he wants his side to give any fight to the Indians. He will hope to get help from others around him too. Let us see what we have in store on Day 3. Join us at 0930 local (0400 GMT) to find out. Till then, good bye!

Ajinkya Rahane joins Murali Kartik for an interview. He starts by saying that he is happy with his performance. States that him and Rohit wanted to see off the first half hour of the first session. Talking about his ton, Ajinkya says that he was feeling well and wanted to counter-attack post Lunch. Adds that the partnership between the two was very important. On being asked about his cover drives, Rahane points out that his flick between mid-wicket and mid on is his favorite shot. On Rohit opening, he answers that he is very happy for Rohit Sharma as he has taken the opportunity with both hands. On the pitch, Jinx says that the ball kept low early on. Points that if the bowlers can bowl wicket-to-wicket, things won't be easy for the batters. Talking about the two wickets the Indians got, Rahane says that it was amazing to see the pacers get wickets on bouncers.

The South African bowlers looked helpless against Rohit and Rahane. None of them troubled the duo. Once Rohit was dismissed, their bowlers managed to stem the run flow. George Linde got four on debut but not before getting the stick from Umesh Yadav.

What happened before that? Ajinkya Rahane raked up a Test ton at home. Rohit Sharma brought up his maiden double ton. Runs kept coming as Jadeja got to his half ton before getting out. Umesh Yadav came, he hammered Linde for 5 sixes in 8 balls before perishing. Kohli eventually declared the Indian innings for 497 runs.

But not before the Indian bowlers, Shami and Yadav have managed to send the two Saffa openers packing. There could've been more casualties but due to bad light, Kohli had to take the pacers off. And then, after just three more overs, the light deteriorated further and the umpires decided to stop play.

So, like Day 1, the final session has been cut short, due to bad light and a slight drizzle. STUMPS IT IS!

3.45 pm local (1015 GMT) - The chances of play looks bleak as the covers are being brought on to the pitch. No rain but just if it starts raining. Oh, wait, it has started to drizzle and we see more covers coming on from all parts of the ground.

The umpires are having a long chat about the light and they have decided to take the players off the park. Kohli does not look happy while walking out.

The hosts, on the other hand, have Bangladesh coming to play a series, IF THE ISSUES BETWEEN THE PLAYERS AND BOARD RESOLVES. That series is set to begin on November 3, 2019 with the first T20I to be played in Delhi. We will love to have your company for that game. Till then Happy Diwali in advance. TAKE CARE!

That's it from this Test series then. The visitors from here play England at home on Boxing day. Interesting to see if they can recover from this hammering from the Indians by then.

The winning skipper, Virat Kohli terms the win as an amazing one. States that the bowlers are doing things which does not happen off the surface. Believes great mindset helps them perform like that. Adds that he is proud of the team. Says that seeing the pacers steaming in, spinners bowling consistently feels good. Kohli says that to be the best side in the world, they knew that they need to be multi-dimensional. Adds that it's all about team efforts. Points that the side does not mind playing an extra bowler instead of playing an extra batsman. Adds that the side has great belief and that they can win anywhere in the world. States that the side wants to be the best side in the world.

ROHIT SHARMA IS MAN OF THE MATCH AS WELL AS MAN OF THE SERIES. The new Indian Test opener starts by saying that he is thankful for getting the opportunity at the top. States that he will take a lot of confidence from the series as an opener. Adds that its a great start for him and he would love to carry on. Adds that when he started opening in 2013, he realized that the opener needs to show some discipline early on. Believes that the management, the coach and the skipper supported him well and that's what helps the player do better. Points that he backs himself for getting those big scores.

The South African skipper, Faf du Plessis starts by saying that the frustrating part for them was that they started well with the bat in the first innings of the first Test but things went downward from there. Congratulates the Indians for dominating all the three Tests. On the Indian bowling attack, the Protea skipper says that in 2015, there were spinning tracks but this time around things are different. Adds that the pitches are perfect for Test cricket. Credits the Indians bowlers for being relentless. Says that the Indian seamers bowled the stumps line and that's why they were successful. Believes that the South Africans were not able to do that consistently. On positives from the tour, Faf says that a lot of young players are coming in. Adds that the series has been tough for them but they will try to compete next time. Adds that touring India has always been tough and the stats speaks for themselves.

Ravi Shastri is there for the interview. Shastri says that the bowling has improved so much that they have taken the pitch out of the equation. Adds that once they have taken the 20 wickets, their batting is so good that they focus on the 20 wickets along with points. On Rohit Sharma and Rahane, Ravi says that Rahane was not going anywhere from the middle order and he needed to rediscover his touch. Adds that Rohit did well as an opener. He knew when to leave the ball, when to defend and when to attack. On Shahbaz Nadeem, Shastri says that he is very impressed with him and says that the first wicket he got was a spinner's delight. Further says that even him in his prime was not able to do what Nadeem did. Says that it is a team effort and there are 6 to 7 players who will put their hand up and contribute for the team.

Mohammed Shami and Mayank Agarwal are in for a chat with Manjrekar. Shami says that the pacers are always ready with the responsibility. Adds that the Indian skipper gives them a lot of confidence by allowing them to have fielders wherever they want to. Says that they try to put the balls in good lines and lengths. Agarwal adds that he was happy to get a debut in Australia. Credits the bowlers for picking 20 wickets in almost every game. On the Protea batters struggling against the Indian quicks, Agarwal says that he enjoys the sight of the opposition batters hopping to play the Indian bowlers. Shami says that everyone works hard on their fitness and that has helped them. He further adds that they have been born and brought up in these conditions so that makes things easier for them. States that the everyone in the team enjoys each other's success.

Let's rewind the series then. It was all about Rohit Sharma and Mayank Agarwal in the first Test. Dean Elgar and Quinton de Kock scored centuries but that was it. After another ton from Rohit Sharma, the Indian bowlers bundled the visitors for a mere 191 runs to win the Test by 203 runs. Ravichandran Ashwin got a 7-fer in the first innings and Shami got a fifer in the second. In the second Test, it was time for a Virat Kohli show as he raked up a double ton while Agarwal scored back-to-back Test match centuries. With contributions from Pujara, Rahane and Jadeja, India yet again posted a huge total of 601 runs before the declaration. And then the Indian bowlers took the responsibility upon them and once again bundled the South Africans for 275 runs which could've been lot less if not for the 109-run stand between Maharaj and Philander for the 9th wicket. Indian skipper Kohli enforced the follow-on there too and the bowlers this time combined together to bundle them out for 189 runs and winning the game by an innings and 137 runs. We already know what has happened here in the final game.

Second innings' Shami was at it again as he picked up 3 wickets while Yadav picked up 2. Jadeja and Ashwin had one wicket to their name too. Nadeem came to bowl the second over of the morning session of Day 4 and picked up the two wickets to seal the game to complete the whitewash.

Then again, it was all about the Indian bowling. The top-order collapsed, Dean Elgar had to retire hurt after getting hit on the helmet with Theunis de Bruyn becoming the first-ever concussion substitute for the South Africans. George Linde and Dane Piedt frustrated the Indians with a brief stand but they eventually got out. De Bruyn along with Nortje made sure that the game goes to Day 4. But eventually India took just 12 balls to wrap up the things.

Then came the Indian bowling. Two pacers bouncing the openers out before bad weather interrupted the second day's play. Day 3 started with Umesh Yadav removing the visitor's skipper Faf du Plessis in the first over. Then, a 91-run stand was the only positive that happened for the Proteas in the first innings. Hamza after getting to his maiden half ton departed and the visitors were bundled for a paltry total of 162 runs. Umesh Yadav was the pick of the bowlers with 3 scalps while Shami, Jadeja and debutant Nadeem picking two apiece. Kohli then enforced the follow-on, 8th time as a captain, most by an Indian.

The bowling for the Proteas started with a positive note with Rabada and Ngidi troubling the Indians at the top. But once Rohit and Rahane got their eyes in, they hammered all the Protea bowlers.After the eary wickets, the Protea bowlers looked listless. Debutant George Linde got 4 wickets to his name but not before giving away 133 runs in 31 overs.

Let's talk about how the Test started. Faf du Plessis, the Protea skipper arrived for the Toss with Temba Bavuma for some luck. Well, no luck as Kohli won the Toss and opted to bat first. The decision looked to backfire when Rabada struck twice to leave India reeling at 39/3. And then the two Mumbai lads got together and stitched a mammoth 267-run stand between them. Rohit Sharma went on to score his maiden double ton while Rahane got to a century at home after 3 years. Ravindra Jadeja scored a half ton too but Umesh Yadav's 5 sixes in 10 balls added insult to injury for the Proteas and helped India post 497 runs before Virat declared the innings.

Bruised! Whitewashed! Beaten! Hammered! Dominated! Unbeaten! The first three words describe the Proteas Test series and the last three describes the the way the Indians have played. Another 40 points for India in the ICC World Test Championship as they consolidate their position further at the top (240 points). A big zero in front of the name of the visitors in the same points table, after playing 3 games.

Weather report - It is a perfect day to play cricket as it is bright and sunny at the moment.

Pitch report - Sunil Gavaskar is there near the pitch. He says that the cracks have opened up a little but that will not affect the game. Further says that the South African batters were looking to get to the pitch of the ball but were getting out between bat and pad. Further says that the Protea bowlers were bowling too short. Adds that the Indian bowlers have been so good that they have not been able to cope with it.

2 deliveries? 20 deliveries? 200 deliveries? How long Day 4 will last? Any chance for a South African redemption? Doesn't look like that way? Then, any possibility of a draw? Yes, the two batters at the crease dig in, play and play and keep playing. And then rain to their rescue. Anything is possible in cricket. What will happen? We will find out soon. Welcome to our coverage of Day 4.

... Day 4, Session 1 ...

Now, just two more wickets. How long will the Indians take to get them? Can the remaining two wickets frustrate the Indians? We will have the answers on Day 4. Join us for that at 0930 local (0400 GMT).

Murali Kartik has got debutant Shahbaz Nadeem for an interview. He says that it is nice to make a debut on his home ground after years of hard work in the domestic circuit. On receiving the Test cap, says that he was excited and emotional on getting the cap. Further goes on to say, that when the match started, he started focusing more on the match and how to bowl on this wicket. On his first wicket, Nadeem points out that it was a typical wicket for a left-arm spinner as he deceived Bavuma with the flight. Adds that he enjoys playing with Ashwin and Jadeja as he gets to learn a lot from them. Adds that till the ball was hard, there was a bit for the spinners but once the ball gets old, it becomes easier for the batsmen.

In the bowling department for the Indians, it was the second innings specialist, Mohammed Shami who was at it again as he picked up three wickets. He got good support from Umesh Yadav who got two. Jadeja picked up two as well while Ashwin finally got one in the match too.

The start in the second innings for the Proteas was same as the first. The Indian pacers demolished the top order of the visitors to leave them tattering at 36 for 5. Dean Elgar was hit on the helmet by a bouncer off Umesh Yadav and we had a concussion substitute as de Bruyn replaced Elgar for the second innings. George Linde and Dane Piedt once again troubled the Indians for a while but they eventually fell.

It was all about the Indian bowlers in the morning session as they pegged the Protea innings with regular wickets. Umesh Yadav picked up three while Shami, Nadeem and Jadeja got two wickets in bundling out the visitors.

The day started with Umesh Yadav picking up an early wicket in the morning. Hamza and Bavuma stitched a decent partnership but once that stand was broken, the South African innings fell apart. Linde along with Nortje frustrated the Indian bowlers for a while but the hosts eventually bundled them out and enforced a follow-on. This is the 8th time that Virat Kohli has enforced the follow-on, most by an Indian captain.

So the light is fading further, the umpire takes the bails off and we are off. STUMPS ON DAY 3. 16 wickets. One would think that India have batted too. Well, not really. All of the wickets fell are of the visitors. 8 of the first innings and 8 in the second. No challenge from the Protea batters in the final innings of the Test series. Just two more wickets for the Indians to complete a whitewash.

The Indian physio is out in the middle to attend Wriddhiman Saha. He looks in a lot of pain out there. Seems like we will have Rishabh Pant keeping the wicket as Saha is going off the field. Yes, Pant is getting ready and now we are ready to begin.

Ravichandran Ashwin to George Linde. Ashwin starts with a ball firing outside off, the ball hits the cracks and keeps low. The ball goes behind, Saha looks to collect but the ball hits ring finger. He is down in pain.

DRINKS! The session started with Elgar not coming out to bat after getting hit on the helmet. Klaasen walked in with George Linde. Klaasen came in and went quickly but Linde along with Piedt have managed to play out nearly 10 overs. How long can they survive against this Indian attack. It looks bright and sunny right now. Let's see how the Indian bowlers bowl in the final hour of the session. Ravichandran Ashwin into the attack.

... Day 3, Session 3 ...

The visitors, on the other hand, were dismal with the bat. They had no clue as to how to play the swinging deliveries of the Indian pace bowlers and are now staring at an innings defeat. The Protea batsmen came and went back in a flash. Elgar got hit on the neck just before Tea and it will be interesting to see who comes out to bat. Will this match go to Day 4 or will it finish today itself? Join us in 1455 local (0925 GMT)

What a session this has been for India! They bowled out South Africa for a paltry total and made South Africa bat again. Then, Umesh and Shami came out with venom and prized out four quick wickets. They are just six wickets away from an innings victory and this match looks likely to finish on Day 3 itself.

Ouch! On the helmet. Elgar looks in pain. The physio is out in the middle to check after him. The Indian players get around the batter to check after him. The concussion test will follow. EARLY TEA TAKEN.

9.3 0

Umesh Yadav to Dean Elgar. Ouch! Straight on the helmet. Elgar goes down straightaway. A back of a length ball, Elgar took the eyes off the ball early and the ball thuds on the helmet.

Faf looks to defend it out but is beaten as the ball jags back in. It hits the pads, Shami and the Indians belt out an appeal. The umpire agrees. The Protea skipper consults Elgar and goes for the DRS. Well, keep walking, Mr. Skipper because there is no edge and three reds it is which is confirmed by the Ultra Edge and the Ball Tracker. Skipper gone, takes one review with him too. South Africa in tatters, in the second innings too.

DRS TIME! Given out but Faf after consulting Elgar has opted for the review. Looks dead plumb. Lets see what the replays show. Here comes the Ultra Edge, no bat. The Ball Tracker shows three reds. Faf has to go, and he takes a review with him as well.
